About Us

DOG DAYS  is a  non-profit, mobile "pop up" shelter dog adoption event in Connecticut. Our event philosophy is based on the premise “it takes a village to rescue a dog” and we rely on the community volunteers, merchants and civic organizations from the town that "hosts" our event, to take part in the adoption weekend.

Our events have approximately 80 dogs for adoption, 40 large breed dogs and 40 small breeds and puppies. All have been seen by a vet, are current on all shots and have been spayed or neutered. Rescues from around the state of Connecticut are invited and beyond if we can't find enough dogs to fill the event. Training demonstrations as well as grooming information, diet, veterinary care and more are at every event to help a new adopter take care of their new best friend.

We've created many volunteer programs for children ages 8 to 18, as well as adults, to included everyone in the joyful process of saving a dog from a dismal life.
We're energized by our commitment and dedication to find as many responsible adopters as we can and introduce them to a luckless shelter dog in need. 

We could use your help and you don't have to leave your home to make a big difference! CLICK HERE TO FILL IN OUR ONLINE VOLUNTEER FORM if you can help and we'll let you know what opportunities exist.
